The lowdown – home from home pampering
Not often do you find a salon that makes you feel at home as soon as you walk through the door. Mooeys, specialising in waxing and nails (and doing a cracking job) does just that. The staff are so warm they feel like old friends and before you know it you’re sat back in one of the comfy armchairs, enjoying a cuppa and good natter whilst being groomed by these lovely professionals. You will not want to leave.

If you like your coffee with a side of style then look no further than Gail’s.

The atmosphere is relaxed, the service full of personality and the food deliciously authentic. From the tasty savoury pastries to the (almost) too pretty to eat sweet treats – and not forgetting the homemade bread – everything in Gail’s feels ‘real’ and leaves you feeling a little bit smug.
